Hephaestus Industries is a design and engineering firm focused on product design and systems solutions. Hephaestus is the Greek God of engineering and technology. The attitude we would like to portray is a serious and precise one with high attention to detail. Innovation, thinking outside the box, and minimalism are all core ideas within the company.
We exist in a multitude of markets, including the IT industry, the government sector, the automobile industry, the aerospace industry, as well as simple every day design projects in daily and household use. If something can be improved or invented we are there in the mix.
Color is at your discretion but I would prefer to have no more than 3 colors. 1 or 2 colors is fine as well.
Design ideas and info on Hephaestus can be found at the following link, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hephaestus
The drawings should be exact and expandable (something that can be used on a billboard, or business card) so the measurements between shapes should be drawn precisely.
This is a two part project.
A. Please see the attached photo titled "Hephaestus Industries Logo Sketch2". This is a VERY rough sketch of the basic design concept I would like to stick with. As can be seen their are four primary components that I would like incorporated into the design: a gear (cog), a hammer, an anvil, and tongs.
B. The Company Name "HEPHAESTUS INDUSTRIES" should be incorporated into the design as well. How you do this and the font you choose at at your discretion but it should be in all caps.
C. The proportions of the shapes in the design must be based on or include the "Golden Ratio" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_ratio).
A. Take the logo design from Part 1, and add a scythe (what the Grim Reaper carries) to the Anvil, Hammer, Tongs and Gear combo (I was thinking maybe inserting it vertically with the blade curving around the gear)
B. Replace the Words from Part 1 with "HEPHAESTUS ARMAMENTS".
